Tinnitus

Tinnitus Treatment In Utah And Nevada

Ringing in the ears, buzzing, or whistling is most commonly known as tinnitus.

According to statistics, over 45 million Americans suffer from tinnitus, making it one of the most common conditions in the United States.

You may have experienced a high-pitched buzzing sound once in your life before, or maybe you’ve heard someone else say “What’s that?” when there’s nothing there.

Well, imagine that as your everyday reality – that’s what it’s like to live with tinnitus.

The condition manifests itself differently from person to person, however, the common ground for all cases is that the more you pay attention to it, the worse it gets.

For something that you can hear all day long, you can only imagine how excruciating that can be. You’ll try and find anything to stop it.

What Causes Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is not actually a disease, but it is a symptom of something else going on in the body.

It could be the result of a cold, head infection, or possibly a hearing loss. Sometimes things, such as stress, sleep deprivation, and alcohol, can make tinnitus flare up.

One of the most common causes is due to an underlying hearing loss, which is either age related or noise induced.

Tinnitus occurs in this situation as a result of the nerve being deprived of regular audio. The brain then recognizes this deprivation and inputs a sound in its place, which is recognized as a buzzing or ringing sound.

Another theory to explain tinnitus could be due to a physical obstruction in the ear such as earwax or dirt in the inner ear. This can cause a distorted sound quality.
